Humble man of God named Nat Turner was determined to destroy the institution of slavery at any cost. In late August 1831, he led an audacious attempt to change his world forever, believing that God had chosen him to deliver the death blow to slavery. Nat Turner’s holy war polarized the nation and set the stage for the opening guns of the Civil War. He gave his life for the great dream of bringing a new day of liberation to more than two million slaves more than a quarter-century before President Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation.
